Vancouver candlelight vigil set for local homicide victims

By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

The National Women’s Coalition Against Violence & Exploitation will hold a candlelight vigil the evening of Sept. 25 in recognition of the National Day of Remembrance for Homicide Victims.

The vigil will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Esther Short Park’s Propstra Square. The public is encouraged to bring a cellphone with a flashlight or a battery-operated candle.

NWCAVE invites people who have lost someone to homicide to wear shirts and buttons of their loved one, or bring photos or posters.

Nichole Norris, mother of Meshay Melendez and grandmother of Layla Stewart, along with Joseph Thuney, father of Brittany Thuney, will also be hosting the event.
